I have a Leslie’s matrix with population growth for this year.
0 2 3 240
0.2 0 0 400
0 0.5 0 320
Next year’s population is
1200
200
160
Because
2*240 +3*240 = 1200
0.2*400 = 200
0.5*320 = 160
How can I calculate population in 50 years?
Thank you.
Sorry for the trouble reading my damn questions. Here is one again ...let me rephrase it this time.
The link you sent is great, but how do they calculate? I need to see details...do I need to calculate every year 50 times? (my new damn question LOL)
In my book they skipped the power calculation, just gave the answer after 1 year and then answer for power of 10. (no calculation)
LaTex is nice...but I really do not have time to learn it, trying to keep up with other math stuff.
On a positive note, I understood my mistake above…so now just the power 50 is left.
Thank you for your time!
